The Bhutan Foundation signed a one-year grant agreement with the Bhutan Ecological Society (BES), a civil society organization in Bhutan, to expand the HEROES project to six highland schools. The project ‘Schools at the Edge- Climate change adaptation and responses of high-altitude schools’ will ensure comfortable classrooms and quality learning as a response to harsh climate conditions, reduce the dependency on the use of sparse alpine forest resources through intervention of modern electrical appliances and engage students in the science of phenology observation and climate change.
